Description

Bowral is the largest town in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales, Australia, about ninety minutes south of Sydney. It is the main business and entertainment precinct of the Wingecarribee Shire and Highlands. At the 2016 census, the population of the Bowral area was 12,949. In the past, Bowral served as a rural summer retreat for the gentry of Sydney, resulting in the establishment of a number of estates and manor houses in the district. Today, it is considered a "dormitory suburb" for commuter Sydneysiders, though it is 136km away from the city centre. Bowral is often associated with the cricketer Sir Donald Bradman. Bowral is close to several other historic towns, being 5 kilometres (3 min) from Mittagong, 9 kilometres (6 min) from both Moss Vale and Berrima. The suburb of East Bowral and the village of Burradoo are nearby.
